ParsePosition is a simple class used by Format
and its subclasses to keep track of the current position during parsing.
The parseObject method in the various Format
classes requires a ParsePosition object as an argument.
By design, as you parse through a string with different formats,
you can use the same ParsePosition, since the index parameter
records the current position.
Retrieve the current parse position. On input to a parse method, this
is the index of the character at which parsing will begin; on output, it
is the index of the character following the last character parsed.
